[DragonFlyBSD - Bug #2289] 'kldload linux' fails

Issue #2289 has been updated by Venkatesh Srinivas.

1) Does the kernel have COMPAT_DF12 or COMPAT_43 defined?
2) Can you check if the kernel has the sys_osethostname symbol? (nm /boot/kernel/kernel | grep sys_osethostname)

Could someone also look at a GENERIC kernel and check if /usr/obj/<whatever>/opt_compat.h defines COMPAT_43 to '1' even if COMPAT_43 is not set in GENERIC? It looks like that is the case here, which is a problem, as it turns on awful gorp.
Bug #2289: 'kldload linux' fails

Author: Thomas Nikolajsen
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

On master and DragonFly_RELEASE_3_0 from yesterday (25th January 2012)
loading linux.ko kernel module fails,
both using loader(8) and kldload(8):
link_elf: symbol sys_osethostname undefined.
(i.e. both binutils 2.22 and 2.21)

This may be binutils related;
I think it worked with binutils 2.17, will test.

This is using a custom kernel; will test GENERIC.

# kldload linux
link_elf: symbol sys_osethostname undefined
kldload: can't load linux: No such file or directory
